Symbols To Identify - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Symbols to identify,
An obtained image of materialism...
Wished with a wanting to get and realize,
Leaves many feeling they must qualify...
Who amongst them has arrived to receive,
A getting of respect others with less are left...
Either ignored, rejected.
Criticized and/or despised by a truth deceived.
Truth has gone with its preciousness to keep.
Who better lies,
Gets awarded with the prize.
While a living of all life to live slips to slide quick,
From a grip of that quality once wanted to get.
Until it becomes too late to realize,
Those symbols to identify with images wished...
Begin to fade with kept beliefs.
With no returning back to what has diminished.
Since a blessing of life to receive and respect,
Leaves a consciousness to prioritize,
Living life to comprehend and value.
